PREFACE. 



This book was opened February 26, 1686 [i.e. 1687] 1 by Thomas 
Scottow, the Deputy Register for Maine under Edward Randolph, 
who was sole register in New England under the Andros govern- 
ment. 3 

He had continued the record of deeds of his predecessors in the 
fourth book. It is probable that that fourth book was abandoned by 
him, while only half filled, in consequence of the orders of the 
Andros government, and that in further compliance therewith, the 
fourth book was taken with the earlier books to Boston in May, 1687. 
He continued the record of deeds herein until April 14, 1689 8 , 
only four clays before the revolution in Boston. This sixth book was 
not again resumed till August 26, 1699 4 by the elder Joseph 
Hammond, after he had filled the blank spaces left in books four and 
five. He continued them quite regularly until the last of May, 1700 5 : 
and being in June, 1700, appointed a judge of the County Court of 
Common Pleas, he was succeeded in the office of Register of Deeds 
by his son Joseph Hammond, junior. The younger Hammond 
recorded the balance of this book; his last regular entry beiDg 
apparently in August 1703 6 , although there are scattered entries of 
later dates apparently inserted as marginal notes. 7 

Though mainly a record of deeds, this book embraces records of 
historical importance contemporaneous with the so-called Usurpation 
of Andros, and preserves to posterity the names of many of the 
officials of "his Majesty's Territorj r and Dominion of JSTew England"; 
there is a recital by President Danforth of his authority to make 
legal confirmation to the Inhabitants of Maine of their holdings

under Gorges, from the Governor and Company of the Massachu- 
setts Colony, " the now L d Propriet r of y e above named Province of 
Maine 1 "; a cautious expectancy by some of these " inhabitants " 
that in time to come " there [might] happen a Chief L d Proprietor" 2 
to revive dormant claims; some scattering references to General 
Assemblies of the Province; and others to various acts of the Gen- 
eral Court of Massachusetts. 

The completion of this book fills the gaps in the printed records 
of registered deeds for the whole of the seventeenth century. 
Besides filling those gaps chronologically, it is further especially 
valuable by supplying conveyances, necessary to connect the chain of 
titles to large and important tracts, that in some cases did not find 
their way upon record for many years after their dates; among these 
may be cited the conveyance by the Agamenticus colony in 1638 to 
Henry Simpson of a large and important tract in York 3 ; of George 
Cleeve in 1651 to Nicholas Bartlett of the hundred acres now the 
heart of Portland 4 ; of other grants by Cleeve in 1658 to the two 
Mittens at Portland 5 ; of Prancis Champernown in 1669 to Walter 
Barefoot in Kittery 6 ; of Koger Hill in 1671 to John Hellson at 
Saco 7 ; and many others. 

Quite as noticeable is one omission to which it directs attention ; 
in folio 175 may be read the recital of a conveyance of forty-five 
square miles along the Newichewannock River by Sir Ferdinando 
Gorges to Capt. John Mason of London in 1635. This should have 
gone on record; but there being then no place for a record, and Capt. 
Mason having died before Gorges' establishment of his court and 
registry, it was overlooked. A certified copy of the original was 
lately discovered with other muniments of the Mason titles and is 
now deposited in the Collections of the Maine Historical Society 8 .

estate belonging to an eldest son by the Laws of this Province, as 
there stated, and its occurrence elsewhere previously in these books, 1 
seems to call for a brief abstract of the legislation establishing so 
important a change in the law of inheritance. So far as has been 
disclosed in these books, prior to the purchase of the District of 
Maine in 1676 by Massachusetts, the property of intestates was 
equally distributed among all the children, but after that date the 
laws of that Colony then in force governed the descent; of which 
the following are abstracts, viz: — 

" Chapter iv. (Enacted Dec. 10, 1641.) 

" Of the Bight of Inheritance. 

" § 5. Inheritances are to descend naturally to the next of kin, 
according to the law of nature, delivered by God. 

" § 6. Observe, if a man have more sons than one, then a double 
portion to be assigned and bequeathed to the eldest son, according to 
the law of nature ; unless his own demerit do deprive him of the dig- 
nity of his birthright." 

c 

"Chapter 14: Passed November 1st. 
11 An Act for the Settling and Distribution of the Estate of Intestates. 

"One third part of the personal estate to the wife of the intestate 
forever, besides her dower or thirds in the houses and lands during 
life .... and all the residue of the real and personal estate, by 
equal portions, to and among his children, and such as shall legally 

represent them (if any of them be dead) except the eldest 

son then surviving (where there is no issue of the first-born or of 
any other elder son,) who shall have two shares, or a double portion 
of the whole; and where there are no sons, the daughters shall 
inherit as co-parceuers." 

This law was continued by the Act of March 9, 1784, in full force 
as regards the provision under consideration; it was repealed by the 
Act of June 8, 1789, and a new enactment passed, that all the

children should share alike after the 1st of January 1790. This law 
was continued by the Act of March 12, 1806, until the Separation of 
1820, and was in substance re-encacted by the first Maine Legislature 
and approved March 20, 1821. 

The few errors discovered after seven distinct readings of this 
text, shows the care of the committee, the zeal of the publishers 
and their employes, and its general excellence and handsome 
appearance reflect credit upon all concerned. 

The contractions and abreviations are those used throughout and 
explained in the Preface to Book I.
